We all know the rundown here! It's my top picks of exciting basketball games to watch. There are so many games to choose from, and I want to be able to spotlight all the competition that is playing night in and night out. There are so many good players to choose from that are exciting. So many teams that come out of nowhere and make a lot of noise. 

There was a lot of exciting college basketball in both men's and women's. For men's basketball Gonzaga still holds that #1 spot as they handled up San Francisco Dons pretty well. 

Unranked Maryland was able to come out over on top of #17 ranked Illinois, as Maryland won 81-65 in orderly fashion over their ranked opponent. Then #14 Michigan State was able to come out on top over of then #8 Wisconsin. 

Of course all the Big 12 games have been crazy. At this point everyone has been beaten by everyone at this point. TCU went on a split last week after dropping to Oklahoma State mid week, they had a solid win over #15 Iowa State, 59-44. Stayed tune for both of TCU games as they play against #23 Texas on Tuesday and #13 LSU on Saturday at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

Also, There have been a lot shocks of what these teams and players can do. In women's college basketball, Kansas State's Ayoka Lee set the women's college basketball record for most points in a game. She put up 61 points! Shooting 23-30 from the field and also grabbing 12 rebounds. But that does not come as a surprise as she has been averaging around 24 points a game. So she has been on a clinic.
